My 2006 kia optima airbag indicator light stays on

My 2006 kia optima has repeatedly had the airbag indicator light go on and stay on, then the check engine light will come on. The first time it happened I took it in and had it fixed (and waited 8 hours because they couldn't find the problem wire, which turned out to be under the driver's seat) and within 6 weeks was on again and stayed on since. I want to know how to repair this myself, and have done several electrical system repairs on cars myself in the past.

My advise to you is not to attempt a repair to the airbag system yourself. The airbag module can be set off by static electricty & goes off with the force of a shotgun blast

My 2006 Kia Optima brake lights stay on constantly only when the car is running. When the car is shut off, they will function correctly. All fuses ok. Not sure where else to check.


Does your cruise control work? If not it is the brake light switch. It will be a small mechanical switch that will be activated when pushing down on the brake pedal. May need a new switch or just adjusting.

My airbag light stays on and we haven't had an accident. It just came on and stays on. What do I do?


It will need to be diagnosed since you have a couple of airbags and a few connectors and a few computers which can cause this light to come on.

I own a 2002 Kia Optima. Recently, there is a rumbling noise coming from the front center of the car into the cabin onc you get underway. The faster you go, the louder the rumbling noise. No other problems...


no worries about the airbag light. just be sure to wear you seatbelt. in the event of and accident the airbag may or may not deploy! but to replace the airbag unit its self will be very costly $800-2500. as for the noise you may need to be more specific. its can be anything from alignment, bad ball join, bad motor mount or tran mount, bent rim, or even a bad tire

The airbag light in dash staying on in my 2004


Under driver and passenger seats are wires that go to seat belt anchors.These are tensioner wires.Unplug the wires from the plug under the seat.clean and replace.Doing this while the ignition is turned off.Then turn ignition back on.In 90% of the time this is your problem.Constant movement of seat causes this or rear passengers kicking plugs off.Good luck phil.
